Default Searching for roller skaters you might know!

Do you know any of these people? (see list) If you might, but need more detail, let me know! I'm publishing a book of my Dad's stories, and these people are all mentioned in it. Some just mentioned briefly and others mentioned in more detail, but I want to make sure no one will have a problem with their name being in this collection of his stories. Since my Dad passed away in 2011, I've done my best to try to confirm/deny any details or facts that he mentions, but I really hate to change any of his words as he typed it himself in his later years. (I begged him to write it all down because I didn't want to retell the stories to my own grandkids and get it wrong!)

I'm posting this here in this forum first, as he was almost completely a quad skater, but he did try out inlines for a few years before his heart surgery took him out of the sport. Most of the people he knew where speed skaters, and some of these names were art skaters...

I'm counting on my skating family to help me out now. If you know any of these people, or if you can tell me if they passed and if there is any family that I can contact (if only to let them know their loved one is mentioned) I would be eternally grateful!!! Thank you to anyone who can help!!
**I'm still editing the book to double check facts/dates etc, so if I can't confirm something, I may leave it out and there leave out someone mentioned here. Just a head's up!

I think these are all skating people, I tried to take out the ones that weren't related to skating but there's so many!!!!

I recognize a handful of names on your list from my own speed skating days, but I don't personally know any of them, or have contact info.

HOWEVER... if you're on Facebook, there's a FB group populated by a ton of older quad speed skaters. I don't recall the exact name of the group, but it's something along the lines of "I skated on woods and powder". If you can crack the code and get accepted into that group, you can probably get a few leads (I'd look up the group name myself for you, but I'm on a self-imposed hiatus from FB right now, and I'm trying not to break it for any reason).
